Show Me Day Planned For Feb. 2 at Southeast

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Jan. 4, 2008 — All prospective students and their parents are invited to attend “Show Me Day” Feb. 2 on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. 

“Show Me Day is an opportunity for all individuals interested in attending college to take a closer look at Southeast and check out the numerous options Southeast provides,” said Show Me Day Coordinator Erin Young.

The day will begin with registration at 9:30 a.m. in the Show Me Center. Students are invited to browse through a Student Life Fair after they register from 9:30 to 10 a.m. The fair will allow prospective students to meet Southeast students and staff from areas such as Campus Ministries, Career Services, Dining Services, Greek Life, Academic Support Services, Residence Life and Student Support Services. 

The day will officially begin at 10 a.m. with a brief presentation by Dr. Debbie Below, director of enrollment management and admissions, followed by an introduction of Southeast student leaders. Prospective students also will have an opportunity to meet Southeast’s Redhawks mascot, Rowdy, who will be making a special guest appearance along with the Southeast Sundancers. Following the presentation, an “Academic Fair” will take place in the Show Me Center concourse, and will feature informational displays of the University’s various academic departments.

“Show Me Day gives students and their families a really great introduction to the Southeast campus community,” Young said.  “Show Me Day introduces students and their parents to so many academic and social opportunities in which they can get involved.  We are excited and thrilled about having them here to explore and experience our vibrant and growing campus community.  We want them to get as much information as possible when they are here so they feel comfortable and can succeed when they choose Southeast.”

After participating in the Academic Fair, prospective students may attend presentations on financing their education and Residence Life. Show Me Day also includes the opportunity to dine during lunch in Towers Café.
